Santa has come to Town!
The Lynchburg Museum is proud to announce the “Santa has come to town!”
The museum has recently acquired the mechanical Santa that once greeter shoppers to the downtown Leggett’s Department Store. The 5 foot tall Santa would watch over the shoppers from a display at the store’s entrance. The mechanized figure could turn and wave to the shoppers while his reindeer bobbed up and down as though in flight (quite a feat for store figures in the 50’s & 60’s.)
Santa can be viewed until January 31, 2014 at the Lynchburg Museum, in downtown Lynchburg, VA, at 901 Court Street. Museum hours are Monday – Saturday 10-4 and Sunday 12-4. Entrance fees run between $3.00-$6.00. Entrance fees are waived on First Fridays between 5:00-8:00 pm.
